Ive tried a couple of fire bricks in keg bottom, then placed a stainless steel colander (filled with charcoal) on the bricks.
Worked pretty well.
Adjust the size of the colander to the size of your steak(s).

Another option may be to start a fire starter chimney filled with charcoal, and place directly on the keg bottom. Then cook over that with cast iron or other grate over the chimney, when the charcoal is burning hot. Note -  I haven't tried this way yet.

You could put the stainless steel grid in upside down then coals on top.

I use my Kick Ash Basket to lower/raise mine....

My keg is modded with the KJ Divide/Conquer racks, but would probably be easy enough to rig something up to hang/rest it with the factory setup.

Just getting around to trying out this idea and I was surprised to find that the cast iron grid fits perfectly over the inverted chrome plated grid.  Note the post of the chrome grid is inserted into one of the holes in the cast iron grid.

That's a good idea.
Taking that one step further,  you could use two cast iron grids.  I think burning lump on the chrome grid might speed up oxidation. Plus it might fall out
